1x4 King 1K Stone
King 1K KME Stone 1x4
The King 1K sharpening stone is a tried and true standard full size stone in the kitchen known for its good results at an economical price. Now it's available for the KME in 1"x4" and 1/4" thick, adding yet another option to the already versatile system.
The King 1K is a softer stone, and is used with water. It has cutting power while it's paste/mud is utilized to squeeze out a slightly finer finish than advertised in it's grit. The real benefit to KME users is the stone's ability to remove the deeper diamond stone scratches to prepare the edge for the stock Arkansas stones, or to further refine with other accessory stones, films, or strops. From the 1,500 diamond KME, it is still considered a lateral move due to the depth of scratches left by the finer diamond plates.
